Bourjois Twist Up the Volume Mascara

Bourjois Twist me up

So, it has been a long time since I last did a beauty post (or any post at all for that matter) and I figured a great product to review would be a Bourjois mascara. I'm a huge fan of Bourjois, and frankly, they are my favourite drugstore brand (don't judge me much). So, here it is, my new Twist Me Up mascara.

1. Application: This mascara comes with a pretty unusual applicator. As we all know, Bourjois are quite fond of nifty applicators (Volume Fast&Perfect mascara with the rotating motorizd brush) This brush however is controlled manually, haha. It has a twist mechanism installed in the cap and two brush positions. Here they are.

Step 1

Position number one separates your lashes, and gives you defined legth (as promised in the description).

Step 2

Position number two gives you oversized volume (also, as promised in the description).

2. Clumping, definition, and how long it lasted: I was so pleased with my lashes after applying this mascara. I honestly never thought they could look so long. But what I'm most satisfied with is how long it lasts. Most drugstore brands promise 12-24h. and a waterproof effect, and well, correct me if I'm wrong but that's just a load of poo (and I'm really trying to sugar-coat it here..). The Bourjois Twist Up the Volume Mascara made no such promises and nevertheless lasted me the whole day, no smuges or anything. I made a little experiment and splashed some water over my eyes - it didn't run all over my face. So overall I'm so pleased with it.

Verdict: I'll be buying it again. And again. And then hm, I hope I don't get bored of it, but still. It's absolutely worth every penny. For the price of 9 pounds it's an absolute bargain! I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking for a drugstore mascara. It's definitely better than the Maybelline one I had, and also, I like the pretty packaging. I'll be uploading a picture in a few hours, for you to see how it works :)

miranda kerr street style
So, we all amire Miranda Kerr's style. She's always sophisticated, even in her everyday life she looks effortlessly beautiful and stylish. Of course, her iconic pencil skirts and dresses are what she's most famous for, but that's not what makes her a style-role model. Every single outfit of hers is divine, seriously, I would die to be able to copy at least one of her outfits. But unfortunately, I don't have the money for a Prada bag. 

And as I've stumbled upon so many Miranda pins on Pinterest, I've decided to show you guys some items on the more affordable end that are really similar to what she wears. I really hope you find this as exciting as I do, as Miranda Kerr is one of my idols, I've seen every single one of ther interview, I adore her Aussie accent, and most of all, her one-of-a-kind style. Here we go!

High-tech fashion #5: Earmuff headphones

Oh, the things people come up with these days! I haven't done a hig-tech fashion post in a while, so here's one for you guys! You may have seen my "Headband headphones" post, and the lovely Kristina Wright left me a link in her comment for earmuff headphones! What might this be, you ask? Well, there they are!

They look so comfy! As it's almost winter time, earmuffs are a must-have. And the people ar PowerMuff have created these awesome ear muff headphones. It's such an interesting invention - bluetooth headphones, that come in the form of earmuffs! What's not to like? The product description promises high sound quality, and if they live up to that promise, this is the greatest girly gadget ever!
They come in all shapes - as you can see in the picture, furry ones, and not so furry ones. They also have leopard prints and black, red and greay plain ones! I've linked you to their site above - they come for the reasonable price of 15$, which for headphones, I must say is pretty much nothing.

Hope you enjoyed the earmuff post! Have you found any weird fashiony gadgets? Feel free to share them in the comments!

Coats and Biker Jackets

So, I recently did a "Fall classics" post, and now I've decided that it's just not enough, as fall is my favourite season, and fall trends this eyar are just amazing. They give you so much freedom to experiment with patterns, colors, and shapes. I've selected for you some gordeous coats and biker jackets I've stumbled upon this fall. Here we go!

1. Coats: All the coats are from Zara, I just couldn't help myself because this season they have such a nice collection of coats and blazers. Wool coats, parkas, anoraks, fluff jackets, trenchcoats... It was so hard to chose just three. I've always worn short coats (because I'm too shor for long ones), but all my picks are long ones, I'm just so fascinated with them!

2. Biker Jackets: Biker jackets are my one true love in autumn time. Even faux leather ones. Mainly because there are so many variations. Cropped ones, ones with detatchable sleevs, zippers on the side etc. If you are a rock chick or if you just like the biker jacket look - you are gonna love these!
